cheap cheap licensing and bandwidth.Obviously, Microsoft can go right after google and AWS and undercut the Microsoft server licensing model since they can give them away. That has ensured a very low cost point. That said, that is really the only draw. If you are on a linux platform, I'd probably take AWS or google. Spinning up a VM (even pre-configured for you) was as simple as a couple clicks. Performance was as expected. The only issue I had was support.

1. The pay to go helps to pay only for the usage. It helps in reducing the backup cost a lot. 2. The backups are compressed, so it helps in making the backups faster and affordable because of small size.

It is nice when you need to deploy things that are geographically dispersed but don't have a presence in that area. You can deploy into a region that you are not in to satisfy a business need in a different locale.Being able to deploy applications and services in the cloud without having to own the infrastructure.

The price is pretty competitive. Visual Studio tools are built for it. There are tons of storage options, and if you're building an app from the ground up you can take advantage of cheap storage like Table Storage where possible, and SQL (or other DB) for the rest. There's a video transcoding service. I never thought we'd need it, but we do now and it's really reasonably priced. Lots of little features like this are really convenient.

Azure allows us to provide a complete customer solution in the cloud, providing servers, databases, authentication and web services/sites. The newer administration user interface is simple to use, yet allows control over most of your services, and powershell can be used to control them completely. We host several customer environments in the Azure cloud, along with our own SaaS product, and we have never had a problem with it. Monitoring is also comprehensive, allowing manual or automatic availability provisioning to be easy.
